Poppy Weather

Hi everyone and it's another beautiful sunny day here in the UK, I hope it is where you are too. I have a house mouse card to show today and as it feels like poppy weather I think this little snoozer is just right :). He's from a lovely House Mouse set available from The Craft Barn and there are lots of gorgeous sets available.  I painted him with distress inks  onto smooth watercolour paper and added stickles glitter, nestabilities circles dies and punched butterflies with Craft Creations dark grey gingham paper.  As it's Easter The Craft Barn has free postage on all UK orders, free postage on European orders over £20 and other international destinations free postage for orders over £30 until Monday.

I'm entering my card into Cute Card Thursday challenge of  'no text', The ABC Challenge 'sparkle' and Fluttery Wednesday Challenge which is an open theme but must include a butterfly, fairy or angel..

Enjoy your day and thank you as always for your lovely comments :)

Oh Chris! This is adorable! I have this cute HM set but haven't had a chance to ink it yet ... must rectify that! You've inspired me :) The little mousey looks so content. Beautiful work as always!
Happy Easter to you and your family,
